Mills, Reece; Tomas, Louisa; Lewthwaite, Brian – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
There is a need for research-informed instructional approaches that promote school students' deep conceptual understanding of abstract geological concepts. Given that a type of learner-constructed stop-motion animation, 'slowmation', has been shown to offer affordances for learning in science preservice teacher education, we extended its…

Lie, Richard; Selcen Guzey, S.; Moore, Tamara J. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
Recent reforms in education call for science teachers to incorporate STEM concepts into their curricula. This study explores the association among student and teacher demographics, and student learning of engineering content and attitudes towards STEM after participation in an elementary or middle school engineering-based science curricula.…

Johnson, Emily Kuzneski – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
This study employed mixed methods to investigate the efficacy of scaffolding self-regulated learning prompts within a whole-body educational game, "Waves." This game was designed to teach middle school-aged children basic concepts of waves by moving their bodies to mimic the motions of waves, physically experiencing different velocities…

Malone, Kathy L.; Schunn, Christian D.; Schuchardt, Anita M. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
The National Research Council framework for science education and the Next Generation Science Standards have developed a need for additional research and development of curricula that is both technologically model-based and includes engineering practices. This is especially the case for biology education. This paper describes a quasi-experimental…

Michaluk, Lynnette; Stoiko, Rachel; Stewart, Gay; Stewart, John – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
Elementary teachers often hold inaccurate beliefs about the Nature of Science (NoS) and have negative attitudes toward science and mathematics. Using a pre-post design, the current study examined beliefs about the NoS, attitudes toward science and mathematics, and beliefs about the teaching of mathematics and science in a large sample study…

Bush, Drew; Sieber, Renee; Seiler, Gale; Chandler, Mark – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
This study with 79 students in Montreal, Quebec, compared the educational use of a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) global climate model (GCM) to climate education technologies developed for classroom use that included simpler interfaces and processes. The goal was to show how differing climate education technologies succeed…

Schleisman, Katrina B.; Selcen Guzey, S.; Lie, Richard; Michlin, Michael; Desjardins, Christopher; Shackleton, Hazel S.; Schwerdfeger, August C.; Michalowski, Martin; Dubinsky, Janet M. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
Mobile applications (apps) for learning technical scientific content are becoming increasingly popular in educational settings. Neuroscience is often considered complex and challenging for most students to understand conceptually. "iNeuron" is a recently developed iOS app that teaches basic neuroscience in the context of a series of…

Olakanmi, Eunice Eyitayo – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
This study establishes the effects of a flipped classroom model of instruction on academic performance and attitudes of 66 first-year secondary school students towards chemistry. A pre-test and post-test experimental design was employed to assign students randomly into either the experimental or control group. In order to assess the suitability of…

Kern, Cindy L.; Crippen, Kent J. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
Scientific inscriptions--graphs, diagrams, and data--and argumentation are integral to learning and communicating science and are common elements in cyberlearning environments--those involving the use of networked learning technologies. However, previous research has indicated that learners struggle to use inscriptions and when they engage in…

Preininger, Anita M. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
There are many factors that shape students' attitudes toward science, technology, engineering and mathematics. This exploratory study of high school students examined the effect of enriching chemistry with math on chemistry students' attitudes toward math and careers involving math. To measure student attitudes, a survey was administered before…

Smith, Spencer; Chan, Samantha – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
This study measures the success of using a collaborative and competitive video game, named Space Race, to teach computing to first year engineering students. Space Race is played by teams of four, each with their own tablet, collaborating to compete against the other teams in the class. The impact of the game on student learning was studied…

Gardner, Joel; Belland, Brian R. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
To address the need for effective, efficient ways to apply active learning in undergraduate biology courses, in this paper, we propose a problem-centered approach that utilizes supplemental web-based instructional materials based on principles of active learning. We compared two supplementary web-based modules using active learning strategies: the…

Herrington, Deborah G.; Sweeder, Ryan D.; VandenPlas, Jessica R. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
As students increasingly use online chemistry animations and simulations, it is becoming more important to understand how students independently engage with such materials and to develop a set of best practices for students' use of these resources outside of the classroom. Most of the literature examining students' use of animations and…

Patchen, Amie K.; Zhang, Lin; Barnett, Michael – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
This study examines an out-of-school time program targeting elementary-aged youth from populations that are typically underrepresented in science fields (primarily African-American, Hispanic, and/or English Language Learner participants). The program aimed to foster positive attitudes toward science among youth by engaging them in growing plants…

Jaipal-Jamani, Kamini; Angeli, Charoula – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2017
The current impetus for increasing STEM in K-12 education calls for an examination of how preservice teachers are being prepared to teach STEM. This paper reports on a study that examined elementary preservice teachers' (n = 21) self-efficacy, understanding of science concepts, and computational thinking as they engaged with robotics in a science…
